The Daily Naiyāyika?

Over the last week, debate has been in the news, or at least The Atlantic and Twitter. After writing an article on a "new field" called "erisology," Atlantic writer Jesse Singal was taken to task on Twitter by a number of philosophers for ignoring philosophical contributions to theories of argumentation (Daily Nous discussion of the article is here). Then, a few days later, he was the target of criticism for his remarks about the value of debating people who hold odious views, apparently implying that former African slaves in the United States were involved in debating slaveholders. Most recently, Agnes Callard has written about whether philosophy is "fight club," saying, "What could be better than a good old-fashioned philosophy battle?" and "Fighting, done right, is a form of inquiry."

What does this have to do with Indian philosophy?
